Passing Through is an audio walk that takes you on a journey of the streets of Old Toronto, discovering the secret artworks and innovations hidden between the cobblestones. You will walk from Union Station to Old Toronto's St. Lawrence Market, gently guided by an insightful narration that is both beautiful and exciting.
The audio walk asks you to begin in Union Station by the VIA Arrival/Departure board in the Grand Hall and end in the St. Lawrence Market neighbourhood. Download the audio to your device, and bring your favourite headphones!
Toronto’s streets are a living thing. They change and evolve over time, and each one tells a story of where we’ve been, and where we are going.
Passing Through is presented in partnership by The City of Toronto Transportation Street Art Program, and the Koffler Centre of the Arts. It is produced by Accounts and Records, and presented in partnership with The City of Toronto Transportation Street Art Program, and the Koffler Centre of the Arts.
